First Era (December 4th, 2019 to January 12th, 2020)
Roanapur is founded at the tip of a large peninsula, debatably in the territory of either Siam or Vietnam. Chosen for its easy access to the shallows seas in the Gulf of Thailand and proximity to both China and India, this location would naturally lead to development occurring in the direction of the base of the peninsula.
As plans were developed for future structures, it became abundantly clear that more space, horizontally and vertically, would be required. The local flora proved to be the more difficult part of this phase, with the initial flattening of the peninsula going quite smoothly.
Laying Down the Foundation
With a fair degree of clearing out of the way, the foundation of what was to become a key structure in Roanapur's early history was laid: its two quarter-circle towers and the terraced farms that would surround them. This phase also saw the construction of the six arches that cross over the city's central path.
Roanapur also began an alliance with the then independent town of Pursat during a ceasefire between Vietnam and Siam during the Siamese-Vietnamese War, both towns determining that it was the best course of action to ensure the safety and future prosperity of the area.
Expansion and Construction
Prior to the beginnings of resident build, Roanapur grew its claims and roadways in preparation for the future. This time saw further clear-cutting of forest and land, with much of main roadways being constructed during this time. The foundations of Alpha and Bravo Tower, having long been only that, grew into the first buildings. By the end of the first era, they both had at least two (2) floors. The Bay of Thailand tunnel that would one day stretch across the bay also began construction during this time.
Accretion Era (January 13th, 2020 to February 20th, 2020)
January 13 marked the first time Roanapur had an official landowner. Although others had joined and mingled with the town before, this was the period in which resident builds joined the town scene.
Further Land Expansion and Clearing
Stagnation Era (February 21st, 2020 to May 5th, 2020)
A new resident joins Roanapur, but both are lost in the following months as activity throughout Siam declines.
Revival Era (May 6th, 2020 to present)
As of present, only the preliminary work of clearing space and laying foundations is underway. As such, no buildings exist as of yet. Plans for future development include a hot springs, protective walls across the nearby hills, further construction of Roanapur's two large, central towers.
Currently built structures include
- Terraced gardens
- The first 3 (three) stories of towers Alpha and Bravo
- The beginning of the Bay of Thailand tunnel
- A road network extending throughout occupied and future territory
- Ship hull (renovation needed)
- The beginning of a hot springs nearby
- Border walls along the north and eastern sides of Roanapur
